. >> the american government now warning of more kidnapping threats on westerners and conor powell has our coverage from the middle east bureau in jerusalem. what is the latest today? >> the fighting may be over but there is a lot of question hes and concerns and also confusion about what exactly happened and what is going on and who is alive and who is dead. now, according to algerian officials they are in the bp gas plant and searching for are mines and booby traps that they believe have been laid by the islamic militants. they also are finding bodies, dozens of bodies. according to an algerian television station they are finding dozens of bodies but they are so badly damaged they can't tell if they are members of the terrorist cell that took over the facility or if they are foreign hostages. the algerian government is saying that all 32 militants were killed on the final raid by algerian forces but they also say the death toll s at 23. it could be 25. and it likely will increase over the next couple days as they begin to figure out who was killed and who was not. now, also the details are very,
majority in the house. that is a governing majority. he's going to have it on immigration and also on the debt ceiling. not sure he's going to have it on guns, but he's going to drive the really hard-line republicans crazy because he's going to be able to break off 40 or 50 of them for all these other things. chris: that seems to be true as much as the opposition is hotter and perhaps hardening out there on the right. it does seem that the center right and the center are in play and obama is making his move toward them successfully. >> their governing philosophy coming in is that the fever would break among the tea party folks, among the hard right, and also that just folks in the house would sort of move to the boehner philosophy, which is a governing philosophy. the sort of -- chris: in other words, you don't need a majority of the republicans to rule. >> you break the rule, which is what he's done on these big-ticket items. they have been meeting over these last couple of days to figure out wait forward. i think the president was smart to step into these debates early and often
for gays and lesbians and a much bolder statement in many ways in mr. obama's governing philosophy from here on out. >> we, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths, that all of us are created equal, is the star that guides us still. just as it guided our forebearers through seneca falls and stone wall, a it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung who left footprints along this great mall to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone, to hear a king proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on earth. >> a very big day for the president, for washington, for the country. a very exciting day if you're fascinated by the clash of political ideas. we're going to be looking at the speech as politics and poetry. the day as history and the night as culture. before we do that, let's listen to a little of stevie wonder. ♪ jamming ♪ in the middle of the makings of obama oh jamming ♪ ♪ say it louder ♪ i can't hear you ♪ in the middle of making of obama jamming ♪ ♪ yeah, yeah make some noise ♪ making things be
that they almost have to move were also much of their income is going to go to the government. gerri: us take a look at those numbers. his state tax will go to a 13%. that is a state income tax which means he will pay an additional 2 million in taxes. that doesn't even include the federal increase in taxes that we talk so much about the end of last year which would go to a 39 and a half%. this is a fella who has a net worth of 150 million, making money every single year. he will have a very big tax tab. >> absolutely. >> absolutely commit to the point where he is probably going to have to either move to another state income-tax state or have to move to the caribbean or move out of the estates. gerri: what is that? >> essentially, any place where an athlete place, within their jurisdiction they have to file taxes. so across all sports respectively they have to file in the state where they actually play in the game. any type of income that they receive based of their contract they have to file. the government wants their money. gerri: you were mentioning where he might go. take a look at the hi
to washington, d.c. he was committed to govern the country, not just the one that demanded change. he wanted to work with the democrats and republicans to bring change to reality. he did a pretty good job of it. very first meeting that george w. bush had at the white house with people outside were leaders of the democratic party. he brought in some of the gray beards of the democratic party and how he work as governor and how he wanted to do the same thing as president of united states. it was hard but wasn't easy and i'll never forget how hard we worked to get the first tax cut that provided economic stimulus for the country. we need that kind of work today. >> eric: do you think he'll sit down with mr. boehner for lunch, do you think he'll take that page from that? >> the lunch is a celebration of our democracy and constitution. he'll have all branches of government there. it will be very polite. i think they will not be heavy discussions around some of the challenges that president faces and congress has to deal with. so i'm not expecting a lot of real work to be done at that lunch to cel
rated as one of the worst two-year sessions in the history of the united states government. well, what are we going to do differently? how is it that we only addressed one out of 24 appropriation bills over the last two years? how is it that so many important bills never made it to the floor of the senate, bills such as the replacement for no child left behind, coming on bipartisan vision out of -- out of committee? how is it that so many bills came to this floor to never see a final vote? the disclose act which would have eliminated secrecy in campaign donations. the dream act, which would have honored creating a future for those who know only america as their home. the president's jobs package, which would have helped put america back to work. the closing of loopholes for the biggest, most wealthy oil companies. those funds could be put to use, reducing our deficit or funding critical programs for working americans. on issue after issue after issue, we saw inaction. and what we heard yesterday at the start of this next two years was a call from the president for action. he said in hi
government. >> it shows the social democrats and greens grabbing power with one seat majority over the christian democrats and free democrats. it is not a mandate but it is an alarm for federal elections later this year. >> it was a neck and neck race but it was a loss in sunday's regional election. she hoped her conservatives to gain momentum in the run up to the federal election but the propping up her coalition partners cost her party value political capital. the national election involve every man fighting for himself and his own votes. maybe that is the lesson. we don't need to be so worried that the liberal democrats will be removed from parliament. the liberal democrats polled unexpectedly well in sunday's election. there had been calls for his resignation but now he will lead the call he will be our nominee for this year's federal election, he will be our face or the brains of our campaign. as party head he will lead the team that is part of any successful campaign. the central democrats say they have all of the ingredients for a successful campaign and challenged his base

to that, it is almost entirely health care? >> well, there are examples throughout the federal government where the dollars are not spent wisely. we ought to treat it as other people's money because it is the money earned bit taxpayers and we have an obligation to make sure that we don't continue the wasteful ways of washington. we intend in the house of representatives to promote an agenda that allows for getting spending under control, not just in the health care area but in many other arenas, where even the gao has pointed out again and again there is a lot of room for improvement to rid the system of waste, fraud, and abuse. >>neil: do you think as the president makes his way to the reviewing stand, he is feet from us, literally, from where i am, before he moves to the review youing stand, do you think he is seizing on what he thinks is the advantage over congress and your popularity, collectively, republicans, sir, and he will get his way because you guys have not found yours. what do you say? >> listen, we are in the majority in the house of representatives because the voters of our
limit is a sign of leadership failure, it's a sign that the u.s. government can't pay its own bills, it's a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies. leadership means that the buck stops here. instead, washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today on the backs of our children and grandchildren, therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. in 2008, candidate obama blamed president bush and called the growing debt unpatriotic. >> number 43 added 4 trillion dollars by his lonesome so that we now have over 9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back, $30,000 for every man, woman and child, that's irresponsible. it's unpatriotic. >> mike: unpatriotic. 9 trillion dollars in debt 2008. we're 16 1/2 trillion dollars in debt today. all right. joining me now, former house speaker newt gingrich. mr. speaker, great having you with me tonight. [applause] >> good to be with you, governor. i must say that was a terrific lead-in and one i kind of wish the
's a heinous act and i think we'll talk to the algerian government in the days to come to understand what fully, exactly happened here. >> chris: any second thoughts about the way the algerians handled this? there's a lot of -- not only militant but hostages who were killed. >> well, listen, i think we will obviously be in contact with them about this but the focus needs to be on the terrorists and, a reminder, all across the globe, countries are threat ended by terrorists, who will use civilians, to try and advance their twisted and sick agenda. and i think that that is why this really is an -- will require an international response. and that is why we are so focused on -- with our counterterrorism partners around the globe, northern africa and middle east and elsewhere, working with -- sharing intelligence and technology, expertise, so they can do a good job of destroying the networks before events like this happen. >> chris: let me ask you about that: during the campaign, president obama often talked about al qaeda, as a spent force. but, just this week, when this terrorist action happened,
defamed he brought a whistle blowing suit the government will or will not join in by thursday. that's their deadline to decide whether or not to join him. if floyd landis and the government wins this whistle blowing case he could be looking at $100 million in losses because they are treble damages. >> >> bill: explain the case to me. >> floyd landis said wait a second, you were on this team, you were using these drugs along with me. and you defrauded the government. the oust postal service. >> did landis get caught using them i don't believe. >> he was you. i didn't realize that he was a team of armstrong's. he then came clean, said i did it. armstrong did it armstrong called him a liar, i would assume, right? >> defamed him publicly and there is allegations that he continued to threaten and do the same thing with other people that tried to expose him that he pressured a number of these teammates to blood transfusions to take performance the result is the seven tour de france. >> bill: landis is suing for what though. >> under the whistle blower statute pay back 35 million and trebl
government said the raid was over u.s. officials insist it is ongoing. at least five americans managed to escape. as for the others -- >> in interest of their security, i am not going to provide any further details. >> michael: this is all happening less than 48 hours before president obama is sworn in for his second time. an issue that has been largely quiet for the last four years. joining us now for a joining us now for a perspective on the situation is he's the author of "leading from behind: the reluctant president and the advisors who decide for him". he comes to us from washington. richard, welcome inside "the war room." >> thank you. >> michael: i want to -- i want to ask you about the hostage situation. it's focused american attention on an issue that -- you know, that frankly hasn't had its focus for a while. what can you tell us about, you know, what is happening there, and how it affects america? >> well one of the things that this shows is that ignorance is dangerous. the united states ignored afghanistan in the 1990s and we saw what came out of that.
. >> i understand. >> sean: and what is the maximum that they can take, the maximum the government can have? >> you're asking me for a number. if you're doing better than your secretary and the secretary-- >> maximum? >> they should pay their fair share. >> sean: give me a fair share number. >> i like a flat tax. >> sean: between state, local, federal and isn't it sad people are thinking of moving states? and some people might leave the country, that's sad. >> only people with options can do that and we're losing track of that. >> sean: when those people leave, guess who is going to pay? the people who are left. >> yeah, and the states are being dug into the ground with all of these. >> sean: and we've got to run, but we expect momentarily that vice-president biden will be addressing the troops on this inauguration night. congratulations to the president, first lady for ing, that's all the time at we have left. greta is next to go "on the record" and we'll see you tomorrow night. >> greta: tonight, it's blistering, it isn't so much what was said, but who said it. is the cbs news politi
together a coalition will be tricky. >> it appears so. the last government all molested two years. then the labor party pulled out . in this case it might be even more complicated. binyamin netanyahu, if he is given the first nod, will have 28 days to form a coalition. then he has another 12 days. the question is whether some other party will be asked to put together a coalition. any kind of coalition would veer to the right. if he could do that with a minimum of cooperation would be his preference. >> thank you for reporting to us live from jerusalem. you can see our front page at zeera.com. the first explosion was caused by a car bomb about 30 kilometers south of baghdad. no one has claimed responsibility. activists are reporting two large explosions on the outskirts of damascus. areas have come under heavy shelling for the second day in a row. one town, thousands of syrians fleeing the violence and up in camps and many have been nammaid for life. have more. >> this is inside syria. thousands of people forced to leave their homes. they have nowhere to go. there is fighting nearb
that we need to take back a government that has been rigged against working people, ordinary people, the poor. we need to understand it will take more than one election cycle to bring about fundamental change in this country. it will take wind at the back of the president and political system to bring about change. president obama -- this is not a political time when roosevelt lived in. the labor movements are not as strong. today there was a story about the tea party move -- losing its mojo. we're seeing overreach that has led people to this tipping point moment where millions of people have said enough. the obscene inequality in this country colliding with downward mobility that people feel in their gut, they see it among their family and friends. that has led to this moment where there is the possibility of space. organizers can move into it. we could see some real change. it will not come about through just one leader. >> it helps to have a leader who is effective. >> in traveling with the book, i am reminded about what candidate obamas said when he said i am a were shocked -- r
of 320 million where 50% of the households have someone receiving some government assistance. >> many of them are reference veterans. many of them have paid into the system. social security. >> bill: colmes, it doesn't matter who they are, the nanny state provides some of the provisions are absolutely necessary and some are optional. whether you have more than half of the homes now dependent on the state for their largess you have a nanny state. >> you have to break it down entitlements paying into. >> benefits for serving. >> do you see anyone on the horizon in the traditional realm that can become a leader and galvanize traditional forces in this country? anyone? >> i think there are young conservative leaders like marco unionio. >> he will be on tomorrow night on the program. >> scott walker in wisconsin who are willing not just to talk about conservative economic principles but traditional values. >> take for them to rise. because the media will try to put them down. >> of course, they have already tried to destroy marco ruinio. what you showed in europe was very interesting. espe
is all about. people who maintain an almost total skepticism about what government can accomplish for the good of this country. he talked about all the good things government does, whether it's education or it's a safety net or it's regulation when it has to be done in terms of big business. he launched all those good reasons and then he said, of course, there are people who retain a reasonable skepticism about the role of government in this country. that debate is going to continue. i thought that was an amazing effort. he's not going to win any support from the tea party. he might win though, the congressman may know better, he might be able to make some of the people who represent the suburbs who are not so far right realize this guy is not their enemy. he is somewhat to their left but he's probably as reasonable as anybody to their right in terms of politics these days. >> chris -- >> i think the battle today is between people that want government to function, want the debate to continue, and people that want to take their ball and go home and end government, shut it down, use
the democratic loaf. we recognize we have to have a suspicion of government. this is why i resonate with my conservative brothers. martin luther king jr. was under fbi surveillance until the day he died. government can be oppressive, vicious, ugly, violate your rights, generate propaganda. we need that, too. government can be affirmative, if they are helping poor and working people. government can help use its power for elites. when they come together with no accountability whatsoever, not just politically, but economically. let me say this. martin luther king jr. today could be taken to jail without due process or judicial process under the national defense authorization act because he had a connection with a freedom fighter, nelson mandela. he just got off the terrorist list in 2008. he had a relation to a terrorist. under the present administration, and you can take americans to jail without due process. the black freedom movement has always been suspicious of it. we have black prisoners in their precisely because they were willing to tell the truth that was a threat and we do not talk a
-business customers and others who do not know what their tax rates are going to be or what areas the government may cut back on spending. it is a difficult position for people to wait in. even if they are seen profitability and growth in their business, they are trying to get by with what they haven't been rather than commit to -- with what a house rather than commit to new investments. >> you know how much of a world of participation rate is going to play in unemployment going forward? we have seen a sort of stabilization. will it hit the bottom? and have all of the we're factors played out and now it is just demographics? >> one dindane -- one thing that surprised everybody and one of the reasons we have had a lot of progress on the unemployment rate is past years we have not seen a lot of people re-enter the labour force. participation rates have been pretty much trending down. there is some stabilization that we are seeing now and some are speculating that we might see a little more reentry, but there are varying opinions on that. some on the committee are expecting a lot of people to re- enter
of the european ones are under pressure by the government. but the problem is, if you look at issues in the u.s., they're just so low. there's no ability to cut in the long-term. how do you push through entitlement reform and address those issues, especially if there's no market pressure right now? >> my sense is that you don't. i don't understand how that can be achieved and, therefore, i suppose what i struggle with is what solution can the government find? the bank of japan, if you monetize the debt in a low inflationary environment, is this a free lunch? >> right. >> in the uk, it has turned out to be a free lunch. would it in japan? possibly, yes, and, therefore, i wonder if these issues ever will be addressed. >> and what's so interesting, you're seeing these bizarre rates happening in a monetary policy. we feel like we're in a whole new regime where people feel like it doesn't matter at all. wondering if it matters at all how much you spend and borrow in these situations. how does it change, if at all your strategy from here? >> it makes having a long-term strategy really, really tough
-long debates about the role of government for all time but it does require us to act in our time. (applause) for now decisions are upon us and we cannot afford delay. we cannot mistake absolutism for principle or substitute spectacle for politics or treat name calling as reasoned debate. we must act knowing that our work will be imperfect. (applause) let us of us now embrace with solemn duty an awesome joy what is our lasting birth right with common effort and common purpose with passion and dedication let us answer the call of history and carnto anncertain future that precious light of freedom. >> rose: joining me now from washington, d.c. al hunt of bloomberg, jodi kantor of the "new york times," john dickerson of "slate" and cbs news. here in new york, mark halperin of "time" magazine. al, let me start with you. before we talk about the speech, just talk about the ambience of this inauguration. >> these are wonderful weekends. this is a long weekend. whether it's republican or democrat people who come are in a great mood of celebration, they're walking the streets. i love inaugural weeke
been killed in u.s. drone strike inside yemen. yemeni government says the attack of four militants but the claim has not been independently verified. the attack comes one day after those of anger of the drone attacks blocked a main road linking the targeted town with the capital. the obama administration meanwhile reportedly has decided to exclude cia drone strikes in pakist from new legal oversight for targeted killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism adviser and cia-nominee john brennan has signed off on a plan to exempt the drone attacks in pakistan from a list of operations that would be covered under newly enacted rules. areas covered in the so-called play book include the process for adding names to kill lists, the principles for killing u.s. citizens abroad, and the command chain for authorizing cia or u.s. military strikes outside war zones. the exemption of drone strikes in pakistan would allow the cia to continue carrying them without -- tearing them without a legal framework for a to two years. the hostage standoff in a jury of his ended in the de
. as the president should know by now. the federal government cannot provide for 320 million people. and the dangerous p danger is is that mr. obama's persistent attempts to do that to redistribute prosperity will bankrupt the nation, causing pain to everyone and making it impossible for poorly educated or kiss advantaged whom he sighted to make a living. the president's address was not an urgent call to reform entitlements, provide oversight on economic abuse or even stimulate the economy. none of that was on display. so it is quite clear that the president is willing to go down in history as a crusader for social justice no matter what happens to the economic fabric of the country. he does not want to cut government spending. he does not want to reform entitlements that are now directly threatening the american treasury. unless there is a radical change in the president's thinking, few problems will be solved over the next four years. we'll simply get more of the same. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. we begin our coverage of the inauguration by going down to wa
, it all boils down to there's a very different vision when you're talking about a government that takes about 23%, 24% of gdp and one at 20%, 21% like budget chairman ryan proposed. as we began this debate, they can't even agree on where we start because democrats believe we've already cut $1.7 trillion to $3 trillion all from domestic and defense, nondefense discretionary spending which, of course, that's not true. >> wait a minute. >> $3 trillion in discretionary -- >> no, $1.5 trillion is how the cbo. >> republicans will give you $900 billion and cbo -- you canted even agree where you're starting. >> that is a problem. >> true. but if -- what does it tell you that the ryan budget had essentially no medicare savings in the first ten years? in other words, you have a contest to cut entitlements, and the republicans say to the president, put some cuts on the table. democrats say the reverse, but we haven't seen them from anybody. >> she needs no introduction. that, of course, the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. she has changed her hairstyle. there will be a twitter poll
